6. MHP’S OLYMPIA’S STRONGEST MAN
■ If there’s a better way to define manliness than by picking up, carrying, or pushing heavy stuff all over the place, we don’t know about it. The American Strongman Corporation is bringing its brand of ballsto- the-wall entertainment to Olympia Weekend for the fifth consecutive year, and with two American records and one world record in its storied past and of course, the ever-favorite MHP fan experience this year is shaping up to be the heaviest of all time.
WHEN: Sept. 27, 10 a.m. - 12:30 a.m. (fan experience), 1 p.m. (Strongman); Sept. 28, 10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. (fan experience), 12 noon (Strongman)
DON’T YOU WISH: After psyching yourself up, you were actually strong enough to lift something big and heavy like these guys?
